Hardly recognise Adelaide in that photo - loving the foreground and background combo!
And to think that the previous labor government preferred to waste money on a motorsport festival and a pathetic fashion festival which
nobody cared about.
Off topic but as you mentioned motor racing, let’s not forget…

The Adelaide 500 motor race in its current form attracts over 250,000 people each year for the four-day event.

The Adelaide F1 GP used to attract at times over 400,000 people each year for the four day event, and significantly that event still holds the all-time single day ticketed attendance sporting record for Australia – 205,000 on race day 1995 – I recall the atmosphere because I was there, both at the track and Rundle St East for the after party.

Motor racing, via the F1 GP put Adelaide on the international sporting map, the only other event that did that was a cultural related event of The Beatles tour, when 300,000 people lined the streets of Adelaide in 1964. That captured worldwide media attention and recorded in many publications in the news, opinion articles and books over the decades.

Its great tennis is back in Adelaide as an international tournament (of sorts) and obviously more work will be needed to get a better facility to keep it and expand it long term, but please don’t dismiss the important role motor racing has played in lifting the international awareness of Adelaide and its spin off via tourism.

Thanks, thought it could be. Hope they do something interesting with the cladding or lighting, it's in a pretty prominent spot on the building.

I took this photo yesterday. This is the first time I've looked at this building from this angle across the street. Never realised how gigantic it is standing right in front of it!
